 A problem with this will be the lawyers drawing this mess out and soaking the taxpayers and courts time.

Would you prefer Saudi style where the trial takes a day and then they slice their head off?

to misuse a quote:          Our system of justice is terrible, except when you compare it against all the alternatives...

No, my issue is with the lawyers not seeing the writing on the wall and deciding to soak the taxpayers and clients for a large payday to concoct some far fetched defence.  Misleading the court is a big no-no and a lot of defence lawyers flirt with it.

I have no issue with the system itself allowing clients to defend themselves, my issue is with when lawyers given mountains of evidence in disclosure dragging out cases when they know their client is guilty.
